Are those wheels gonna be the same size as factory wheels for C6 vettes? If they are I honestly don't know if they will rub or not. But if those are 18's or 17's x 9.5 replicas then yes they will fit no problem and look awesome too. I got those wheels 17 x 9.5 size on my SS and let me tell you they are SWEET looking.

They shouldn't rub. I had replica Z06's on my 00 Formula that were C6 offsets that were 9.5. This thread will prob get moved to the wheel/tire section

To be 100% sure you need to find out what size and offset the rims are. There is a chance you will need to run wheel spacers and or hammer the inside of the fender a little bit depending on the width and offset of the rim

The fenders are plastic... I dont recommend taking a hammer to them, the inside lip on the quarters... Now thats a different story ;-)

They will definitely rub in the back. I have em' on my car and I could get the back on by "massaging" the rear fender well with a BFH. Now I have 1.25" or 1.5" (can't remember) spacers on the front and back. This bring them out to the fender wheel and they look like they should.

I also had to roll the rear fenders once the spacers were installed with the Eastwood Fender Roller.
